Speaker Bio: Jane founded purple link in 2015 because there’s a better way to achieve greater results from an organization’s supply chain. Clients discover innovative ways to stop money leaking from the supply chain, draining the bottom line. Clients also increase risk awareness and eliminate, mitigate and reduce risks through knowledge, scenario planning, and collaboration with suppliers. Improved and enhanced skills, tools and processes help companies sustain successes year-over-year.

Jane earned a degree in Industrial Engineering from the University of Missouri and an MBA from San Diego State. Passionate about Lean & Six Sigma, she holds a green belt certification from the University of Michigan and has CPSM and CPSD certifications from the Institute of Supply Management (ISM).

In addition to running her business, she is an adjunct professor teaching Operations Management and Supply Chain Strategies at CSUN, and is an advisory board member for the California State Long Beach Operations and Supply Chain Management program.
